Duty Of Care

The faciliators of the officials training have put together a duty of care statement that will help event organisers and officials for all events.

At rider briefing, which all riders must attend, you should follow the below process:
  • Introduce key Officials
  • The riders representative is to be elected
  • Deliver the "Duty of Care" Statement
  • Flags should be explained
  • Provide a description of the start procedure
  • Always ask for questions

Duty Of Care Statement:  Updated 14/6/16
"As organisers, we have made things as safe as reasonably practicable.  You need to be aware that Motorcycle Racing can be dangerous.  If for any reason you are uncomfortable with this risk or have any concerns, you need to raise them directly with one of the Senior Officials immediately after this briefing, or throughout the events duration.  If they cannot alleviate your concerns you should not particpate in this event."

The word 'racing' can be replaced with 'event' for non-race events.
